Priests Hear From Sex Abuse Victims
By MARYCLAIRE DALE , 09.15.2006, 07:43 PM 

Hundreds of priests in the Philadelphia Archdiocese were summoned by the cardinal Friday to hear from two adults who as children were molested by priests.

The meeting at a seminary was called as partof an effort by the church to teach members of the clergy about victims' struggles to rebuild their lives.

Cardinal Justin Rigali said many priests have read newspaper accounts of abuse victims, but it was important for them to listen to the stories as well.

"It is extremely important for us to hear their stories firsthand so that we may see the human face and hear the human voice," he said.
